Pendulum

Pendulum

Simple and reliable systems used to monitor internal lateral deformations.
Of concrete dams, dam foundations and abutments, tall industrial buildings and bridge piers.
The direct pendulum (plumbline) consists of a stainless steel wire attached to a fixed point at the top of a structure, a weight and a tank of damping fluid to damp movements. Displacements relative to the wire are measured by optical reading stations and telependulum.
The inverted pendulum uses the same readout units but the wire is anchored in the foundation.

Features:

-Simple, reliable and accurate for long-term use
-Available as both direct & inverted systems
-Inverted pendulum measures absolute deformation of structure and can be used to monitor movement during construction; also as reference for geodetic surveying
-Telependulum for remote monitoring and datalogging
